The election will be held on Tuesday, November 11.
School Board Districts 2, 4 and 5 will also appear on the November ballot. Thomas said that newcomer Jo Alyce Harper filed for the District 4 seat, while Sheila M, Martin, also new to politics, will run in District 2. Mike Davis will seek to maintain his seat in District 5. District 2 represents the voting precincts of West Cadiz, South Cadiz 1 and Hamtown. District 4 represents Bethesda and Northwest Cadiz. District 5 represents Cerulean, Montgomery, South Cadiz 2 and Roaring Springs. Presently, Debra Bridges serves District 2 on the School Board, while George “Skip” Howe represents District 4 and Davis sits in the District 5 seat, also serving as Chairman of the Board.
Thomas said that the Board of Supervisors for the Soil and Water Conservation District has three open positions and three petitions to run from William G. Lawrence, James S. Ladd and Roger Boyd, Jr. If the number of petitions does not exceed the number of open seats, the position will not appear on November 4’s ballot.
The posts of City Councilperson, School Board Representative, and Board of Supervisors for the Soil and Water Conservation District are non-partisan positions, meaning a candidate will not declare a political party affiliation on the ballot.
Last week, The Cadiz Record listed a special election date to decide the fate of a petition to allow by-the-drink alcoholic beverage sales at the Arrowhead Golf Course as August 30. The correct date is September 30. Voters in the South Cadiz One Precinct will be the only residents in Trigg County to vote on this initiative.
(The deadline to register a candidacy for school board, Cadiz City Council and Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor fell after The Cadiz Record’s press deadline Tuesday, so other candidates may have submitted their intent to seek office.)
